    You can get 5 gallon bucket from Budget Feed and Seed in Palmer for $43.99, call first at 745-3962 for availability he only stocks about 15 gallons at a time but can get more when needed.

    I don't know for sure but I bet Costco has some and like everything else probably in the large size.

    I live down on the peninsula, and the last time I was in anchorage I bought the bigger jug from sportsmans. I've been dilluting it 50/50 with water and it turns out great. Still fairly thick and smells awesome! But 5 gal. for $30 would be a great deal.

    So what do you guys do with mollases? Mix it up with dog food or just pour it over your barrel or drink it yourselves for health reasons?!

    Obviously we're all dedicated bakers, and we make cookies and cakes.
    Most wear those fancy chef's jackets in the tree stands.
    Kidding.

    Seriously, mix sugar with the molasses (assuming sugar is cheap enough), pour the goo on the dog food, bread, barrel and the dirt around a tree you wanted relocated.
    They seem to have a bit of a problem with the stuff. The smell brings them in, and the sugar manages their addiction.
    Plus it's gooey, sticky and messy, and might leave some remnants on the trail for another bear to smell and follow.

    Good luck!

    Snyd,
    Molasses can be used many different ways.

    Pour in front of your barrel for the bears to step in and track around the woods
    Pour it in on your bait
    Pour it on tree stumps
    Drizzle on the tree branches
    The molasses sticks to everything and they create new scent trails for other bears when they are away from the bait. Same concept as grease.

    Ok cool. I have a couple gallons of "honey water" I call it. Thicker than water but thinner than molasses. I rendered down some beeswax this winter from a 5 gal bucket of "beehive stuff" and this stuff is the leftovers. I was figuring on doing what you just described. Maybe mix some syrup in with it as well.

    I mix about a half gallon mollases with two bottles of maple syrup and either regular granulated sugar or brown sugar. Then I'll fill the maple syrup bottles with hot water and put it in there to help disolve the sugar and mix it all up. Then I'll also use straight mollases to pour over the top of everything, barrel, tree branches, etc.

    I thought they were making a glaze for spring bear hams.
